You might be having scary nightmares because of super annoying frizz and flyaways in your luscious, sleek straight hair locks because even after having beautiful tresses,
you are not able to flaunt them proudly because of such disturbance; feeling your pain and grief, we have come up with more than a few useful tips and tricks that you should follow religiously in order to successfully eliminate frizziness from your manes to rock lustrous, smooth hair locks every day.

1. Adopt a Sulfate-free, Gentle Shampoo
According to hair experts, you must avoid sulfate shampoos in order to maintain the health and appearance of your tresses because sulfate tends to stripe off the natural oils and moisturization from your hairs and scalp and makes them super dry and brittle. And we all know that dryness leads to hair frizz and flyaways.
On the other hand, a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo, like this Kerastase Discipline Bain Fluidealiste Sulfate-FREE Shampoo, would not only help to keep the natural nourishment of your manes intact for maximum moisture retention but at the same time would also make your hair locks feel smooth, manageable and most importantly, free from frizz and flyaways.

2. Never Skip Conditioner
The most common question we have is “do we need to use a conditioner every day?”
The answer is “Hell Yes!”
If you want to cut off any disturbance from your precious manes and wish to flaunt gorgeous smooth tresses, there is nothing better than to condition them regularly; even though the benefits of a good hair conditioner is often underestimated, it is the number one weapon to fight the disturbing frizz and flyaways of your manes by keeping the cuticles extremely hydrated so that the moisturizer and nourishment can penetrate deeply into the hair shafts to make them smooth and silky and manageable.
We would suggest trying this Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Conditioner with Coconut Essences for maximum moisturization and hydration in your strands.

3. Try Co-washing
Even if you use a gentle sulfate-free shampoo for your hair washing routine, it’s still not recommended to shampoo your tresses every day. Instead of washing, you can try co-washing your manes to clean as well as maintain their health and good looks; co-washing or conditioner only washing means that you skip the shampoo and wash your manes entirely with conditioner only.
The advantage of this method is that it provides a great conditioning and hydrating treatment to your tresses while cleaning them thoroughly without stripping off any moisture or natural oils, and making them even frizzier.

4. Opt for a Microfiber Towel
The more you can limit the amount of heat you apply on your hair locks, the better you can control the amount of frizz and flyaways in them, and to soak up almost all the water from your tresses and dry them super quickly, there is nothing better than a microfiber hair towel.
Aside from being super absorbent, the gentle, thin fiber combination makes this towel super soft and smooth which helps to soak up the water from your manes without causing any rubbing or friction with the hair strands, and it’s a common knowledge that less friction results in less frizz and breakage so that you have silky, smooth gorgeous tresses all day long.
We would recommend this DuraComfort essential Super Absorbent Anti-Frizz Microfiber Hair Towel because of its super absorbent ability and durability.
5. Don’t Forget About Oil Massaging
Regular oil massage has endless benefits for your manes, one of which is removing frizz and preventing them to appear again in your delicate hair locks and that’s why, many hair experts suggest you to make a habit of incorporating hair oils, especially pure, organic coconut oil (such as this Viva Naturals Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil) in your hair care routine so that your scalp not only gains its necessary nutrients and minerals from the oil but at the same time your hair strands are also moisturized and nourished to result in silky, smooth frizz-free tresses that you can flaunt proudly.
You can either apply 2/3 hours before washing your manes or keep the oil overnight for maximum moisturization.
6. Put on a Hair Mask Weekly
Another way to keep frizz and flyaways at arm’s length from your precious tresses is by applying a hydrating hair mask at least once a week to maintain their health and good looks.
A hydrating hair mask not only helps to prevent the hair cuticle from opening up and letting in moisture (which is one of the contributors to frizzy hair) but also make sure that your manes, as well as your scalp skin, get a deep conditioning treatment so that they get the required nutrients and nourishment to revive themselves for healthier and silkier looking locks.
We would suggest you opt for this Arvazallia Hydrating Argan Oil Hair Mask and Deep Conditioner because of its amazing ability to transform your damaged tresses into luscious ones.

7. Try to Use an Ionic Hairstyling Tool
Even when we know that heated styling tools like flat iron, curling iron, and hair dryer are quite damaging to our hair locks, we just can’t get enough of these tools for everyday styling purposes, and knowing our obsession, hair experts suggest that we use hot tools that are not damaging to our tresses and at the same time minimize or eliminate disturbing frizz from our manes.
Hair tools that come with ionic technology, such as this INFINITI PRO BY CONAIR Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron, are not only safe for styling your tresses perfectly but also plays a great role in controlling the disturbance of your precious hairs by dispersing the huge amount of negative ions to the manes to lock in natural nourishment and moisture to fight frizziness and flyaways successfully.
8. Adopt Anti-frizz Products During Styling
In addition to incorporating an ionic hair styling tool, we would also recommend that you opt for anti-frizz products like hair serum (John Frieda Frizz Ease Extra Strength Serum), heat protectant spray or primer (Bumble and Bumble Curl style Primer) and holding spray (Moroccan oil Luminous Hairspray) to not only style your tresses perfectly without any heat damage and burns but at the same time to also control the frizziness of your straight hairs so that they are tamed and eventually reduced for silkier, more luscious and incredibly manageable manes.
9. Switch to a Silk Pillowcase
You might have following all the above advice religiously, but still, your hair locks might feel frizzy, and that’s because of the pillowcase that you sleep on; when you sleep or rest on a cotton pillowcase, the cotton thread tends to absorb natural oils from your manes making them dry and brittle.
According to many celebrated hair experts, you must switch to a silk pillowcase as early as possible because the soft silk is not only super comfortable to sleep on but it also helps to maintain nourishment and protects your manes from getting dry and frizzy while you sleep.

Excellent post! Loved reading every part of it!
There is no doubt that you people have researched it well before putting them into words. This piece of writing is clean, minimal, and with just the right amount of information. You didn’t overload with unnecessary information- that’s the beauty of this article. Thanks for always coming up with new ideas and educating us constantly. Keep it up.
Ok now praises aside, I have a small question for you. I have severe sweating problem and when I sleep on a silk pillowcase, sweat is not absorbed and creates a lot of uncomfortableness.
Can you suggest an alternative to a silk pillowcase? What should I use?
I am looking forward to your answer.
First of all, thank you very much for your kind words. We are overwhelmed with your response.
Secondly, if you are not comfortable with a silk pillowcase, you can always wrap your hair in a silk turban like this Evolve Satin Wrap Scarf. The silk wrap or turban would work in the same way and keep frizz and static from your manes at an arm’s length.
We hope this would help you.
Thank you very much. You were right. The wrap works the same way as a silk pillow but it allows me to sleep on a cotton pillowcase.
You guys are amazing. I wish you luck.

In one part of the article, you have mentioned putting on a hair mask weekly? Can I use a natural mask like the egg honey mask? Would it make my hair frizzy?
I am looking for a bit of expert advice here.
Thanks in advance. And best of luck.
Thank you very much for your sweet praising words. We are overwhelmed with your response.
Yes, of course, you can use the egg honey mask on your frizzy hair. it will not only keep frizz and static at bay but would also provide adequate protein to the hair shaft and make them stronger.
We hope this would help you.
I must say that I never thought a simple microfiber towel can change my hair game forever. I have been using the DuraComfort microfiber towel for the last one month and can see a visible reduction in frizz. My hair is now less frizzy and also requires very little time to dry. It was a practical suggestion from your part.
Best of luck people.
